Yes. Also, using "pulp3" makes it easy for a naming conflict to occur with
the existing PuLP <https://pypi.python.org/pypi/PuLP> package. What happens
when their project also gets to version 3? Or when their project gets to
version 4, and downstream packagers want to have a separate package for
versions 4 and 3 of PuLP? One could say that this won't be an issue on
account of the differing capitalization of the projects' names. But I don't
think that capitalization is a good differentiator, as demonstrated by the
NetworkManager project.

And less importantly, using "pulp3" will force us to switch to "pulp4,"
"pulp5," etc as new major versions of Pulp come out.
